I thought Fallout 3 was coming out in October and Gears 2 in November. Either way, I choose both. How can I pass on either when they're both likely to be dope?

Gears 2. Fallout 3 may be good, but I just love Gears.

GoW2; Fallout 3 has failed to impress me thus far.

I'll probably just rent Gears and beat it quicly.  So I'd go with Fallout since there will probably be a lot more gameplay.

This is pretty even 0.o

I'd have to choose Falluot 3 for all the play value it offers.

I've played GOW and only seen video footage of Fallout3, i really enjoyed GOW but Fallout3 is being made by the ppl that made oblivion so i think ill go with Fallout3.

I'm prepared to get punched in the face, but...

If Fallout 3 is not as boring and tedious as Oblivion, then I'm all for it, otherwise I'll stick with Gears 2.

I'm putting Gears of War 2 in the limelight, too. There better be one heck of a compelling story to support what looks like rarely rotating scenery.

Fallout 3, definitely. Gears was such a shallow game. It didn't draw you in at all, save the chainsaw gun. I believe Fallout3 will be as deep as Oblivion and thats all I need.

Fallout 3

I would pick Gears Of War 2. Then probably regret it until i finally break down and go get Fallout 3.

I'm going to say Fallout 3, although I have a suspicion Fallout 3 is going to be nowhere near as good as the hype.

Fallout 3. I wasn't aa big fan of the first Gears, plus all my friends will buy it anyway.

Fallout 3, I'm sure my bro would pick up GeOW2 so it works out.

Well...I think both are gonna be great games and I'm going to get both, but if you stuck a gun to my head and told me to choose one I would go with Fallout 3. The game just looks absolutely amazing from all the gameplay I've seen.

Gears of War 2. 100%

I think I MAY enjoy Fallout 3 more than Gears 2, but I KNOW that Gears will be worth my money. So on day one I will grab Gears off the shelf, and since I have no spine, after a few minutes of staring at Fallout I'll grab that too.

I don't think I'll ever have to choose between those 2 but I'd say Fallout 3.

Shit.  I thought this was gonna be an awesome "Which method of horrible Death would you choose" type of things...

I choose auto-erotic-asphyxiation.

I couldn't pass either up, but if I was forced to choose it would be Gears 2.   Gears has earned a special place in my heart.

I never really played a Fallout game and I love Gears of War so I would pick Gears 2.

Gears of War 2. Fallout 3 looks great, but not anywhere near as good as Gears 2.

I'm surprised that Fallout 3 is winning, especially as I'm sure Gears will definitely outsell it, and by quite a bit.

Thats a toughy, but fallout is more appealing to me right now.
